This publication presents state-of-the-art power managementtechniques for modern electronic appliances that rely on such verylarge-scale integration (VLSI) chips as CPUs and DSPs. The authorthoroughly covers all aspects of the field, including semiconductormanufacturing processes, packages, circuits, functions, andsystems. A unique and significant contribution to the field, thepublication adopts a "system focus" by first presenting theappliance and then delving into the power management architectureand topologies that best serve each appliance.

In addition to specific techniques and applications, thepublication discusses fundamental physical and socioeconomicissues. For example, the author examines Moore's law and its effecton power management and heat dissipation, which points to a futurebreakthrough needed to continue the fast pace of advancement in thehigh-tech industry.

The author provides a solid technical foundation and an analysis ofpopular electronic appliances, including:
* Overview of the semiconductor industry
* Plain-English discussion of semiconductor processes andpackages
* Step-by-step guide to analog design building from the transistorto higher-level functions, leading to the implementation of acomplete voltage regulator
* Popular DC-DC voltage regulation architectures
* AC-DC architectures for power conversion
* Ultra-portable devices, such as cellular phones, PDAs, anddigital still cameras
* Desktop and notebook PCs

The publication concludes with a chapter on special powermanagement topics and an expert forecast of future directions forthe field. This is essential reading for researchers, engineers,and designers in the semiconductor and integrated circuitsindustries. With its extensive use of cross-section drawings aswell as transistor circuit schematics, this is also a recommendedtextbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses incomputer science and electrical engineering.
